Terrible. It’s like a mix of scrotum and rotten fruit. I had to gargle kerosene to remove the taste. The mouthfeel, however, was world-class.

This was a very middle-of-the-road Hefe and not nearly as good as I was hoping. It almost appeard to be filtered and that certainly isn’t good for a Hefe.

Tap. Probably the best beer I got in my short trip to texas. A very good hefe with a light citrus and aster taste. Not bad at all.

Draft. Yellow beer with thin head. Clove, flowers and bubble gum on the nose. Clove, flowers and bubble gum on the taste. Eh.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2008 Draft. Initial taste and smell weren’t very delightful. Once lemon was added, it became drinkable - but that is not how I prefer to drink my beers. Not the worst beer I’ve tasted, but nothing to write home about.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2009 On tap. Pours a nice yellow/ light golden color with a small oily head. Nose is clove an banana but it is a very understated aroma. Taste is extremely well balanced and has nice light wheaty taste, that is rounded out by a lemon and sour finish. When lemon was added it brought out the taste even more which is rare for me to do but as an experiment I tried it and the flavor really blossoms.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 Yellowish cloudy gold color and smells very strongly of wheat, with some banana and clove, even more so than most hefeweizens. Taste is big and flavorful, bubble gummy, smooth and refreshing yet hearty and wheaty. For the style I can tell this is well done, very flavorful and a good beer all around. If you like the style, I think you’ll love this one.

Sampled on tap at the Fort Worth Ginger Man. Slightly cloudy, pale yellow pour, small white head. Huge banana nose! A small of clove underneath. Crisp, light, refreshing body – active carbonation. Flavor is dominated by the banana notes, spiciness comes out as it warms.

At Flying Saucer San Antonio. Tried this one while visiting from California. I had been looking forward to this one for a while. I was so hoping that I would like this one as much as the ratings suggest. Well, as soon as the bartender brought the pint over, I was a little worried. Absolutely no head whatsover, but that’s the way beer gets served to you most of the time. Ok, no big deal. But then the appearance. A slight orange tint, but not much haziness and easy to look through the glass, too easy! Ok, lets take a whiff. Ah, much better. The banana, clove, bubblegum aroma was there, and fairly strong. Very promising. Let’s taste this thing already. Mmm, very nice. A good sour kick, with the flavors that make a good hefe. Well, so where does this leave me? I was very happy with the aroma and taste of this beer. Although the appearance was lacking for me compared to other great hefes, I feel this one came through in the end. I’m glad I finally had the opportunity to try it.
